Advice on good doctor/GP in Lausanne/Pully

I've done a search for the above and a lot of good links/webistes come up but still I think it's worthwhile to open a new thread.....

could anybody recommend a 'GOOD' General Practitioner (english speaking) around Lausanne/Pully/Lutry areas to me? I'm not talking about a directory of doctors but someone you PERSONALLY has good experience with or HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by your friends. Hopefully this thread could serve as a word-of-mouth guide for people who are new here like me.

would be nice if you could provide the information with 1)gender; 2)name; 3)telephone no.; 4)address, if any; 5)if you like, you could share a few words about the GP.

I am aware that 'personal experience' might be very 'personal' and not a guarantee but still it will mean a lot more than browsing a directory. Many thanks

I have a GOOD general practitioner but I've had to stop recommending him as he is not taking new patients. This is very often the case.

I wouldn't count out the directory. It's a good start. Choose one who is near you, speaks your language and is accepting new patients. Then if you don't like him/her then try someone else.

Sometimes it takes a little while to find the right doctor. And it's such a personal thing. I recommended my ob/gyn which I really like but my friend hated her.

Hi Minimia,

could you still share with me his details?

I have my friend telling me that some GP refuse new patients at one point while fully occupied but after a certain period re-accept new patient. This might be due to the 'natural turnover' of patient.....

thanks a lot.

Re: Advice on good doctor/GP in Lausanne/Pully

Minimia, I would also appreciate if you could pm me the GP details.

Also, to support the previous post, I know from experience of my friends with small kids that they had very hard time finding even A DOCTOR, especially for kids, but also for themselves. They called down all the directory and were told that no one accepted new patients. They did all these calls a few times, and finally one of the doctors just said OK. So I suspect that the openings happen randomly, perhaps indeed according to the flow of the patients.

Thanks in advance for the reference, I would really appreciate it.
